's not without the controversy, but the budget cuts that are from educators to parents about the morality of corporate advertising in schools is certainly causing a stir. yet, filling the financial shortfall is the biggest prem fa prem-- problem facing schools today. and he needs funding. >> american public education is in financial crisis. >> he heads up education funding partners, a colorado firm that matches it with schools looking for cash. >> they want the right partners and the right controls, our model gives them that control. >> over the years more schools have been turning to corporate sponsors for much needed revenue. they struck a deal with staples in exchange for ads on the district's website and a supply list containing a coupon and kids got to attend the science enrichment program. >> it's really about selling anything, it's about allowing companies to come in and partner for a good cause and public education in responsible ways. >> there are aggressive campaigns out there buses and playing fields becoming common. for some districts it's what keep the doors open. critics arg
. some join right out of high school with the promise that they can further their education while in the military. this helps not only our troops but an educated military helps america. now the administration has broken another promise. thousands of troops can no longer go to college because the education program has been scuttled. for the sake of politics, the chicken little administration has handpicked programs to cut that would make americans feel the sequester the most. one of those programs is the military tuition assistance program. mr. speaker, tuition assistance for our military is not much money. the pentagon, the department of defense, has a budget of $700 billion. this little program is .1% of e $700 billion department of defense program. the tuition assistance program is great because it's one of the ways our government can take care of our men and women who help us. it's allowed members of the military to take 870,000 courses and graduate 50,000 individuals from many degrees. that is remarkable. but the program is gone thus sayeth the white house. the over the past f
a better education than you. and in fact, the reverse is happening. women entering the work force are often better educated, with more academic and trade certifications than men who are doing it. and women are also doing hard and dangerous jobs. we can look to what they do in the military. they can look at how we see them as firefighters and police officers and prison guards. under the legislative i am proposing, no longer will women be on their own and fighting for equal pay or for equal work. in this country, we say work hard and play by the rules, you'll get ahead. we work hard every day but we find that the rules are different for women and for men. actually, the rules in many workplaces are rigged against us. so, mr. president, i would hope that we would pass my amendment today that would allow us to be able to go forward later on in the year and pass paycheck fairness. it is important to the women in the workplace and it's important to our economy. much is being said here about being pro growth. who isn't pro growth? of course we want to grow our economy. and if we look at the tax str
confident that an investment in their education will lead them to good-paying jobs when they graduate. a balanced budget gives them that confidence that their future will not be threatened by staggering debt. most important we must balance our budget for our children and grandchildren who deserve the same chance of the american dream that we have been given. rather than handing them a bill for this generation's irresponsibility, a balanced budget will allow us to hand them a brighter future, an american future. our budget, a balanced budget, represents a departure from the status quo here in washington and it represents house republicans' commitment to moving our nation forward in a fiscally responsible way. i urge my colleagues to support this resolution and i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from maryland, mr. sarbanes, for five minutes. mr. sarbanes: mr. speaker, i rise today to commemorate the 192nd anniversary of greek independence day. greece and america are history's most storied democracies. our founding
're losing, our children are actually being indoctrinated in the education system. this teacher's union, they are teaching our kids the liberal philosophy, and if we could infiltrate the educational system and the media, we would probably have a better chance. host: and how do you use that? what changes need to be made in order to do that? are you not happy with current conservative outlets that are out there? caller: i would actually pay for the education from some of these conserve tizz so they could get into the school system. host: carl from martinsville, west virginia, with another call there at home this morning. here's a story from the "usa today", a few other stories we wanted to point out to you. relatives kept on campaign payrolls. an investigation that "usa today" did, 32 members of congress dispensed more than $2 million in campaign funds to pay relatives' salaries during the 2012 election cycle, a "usa today" analysis at the most recent campaign record shows. law makers have hired their children, their spouses, aunts, parents, and in-laws as consultants, account acts and re
and opportunity. we want families that are strong, children that are well educated, we want to lift people up from poverty to put the american dream in reach for everybody. our party just can't hire our way forward. it must inspire our way forward. we will do a better job of connecting with people to our principles, showing how we can help every american climb the economic ladder. knowing parents want the best for their children, we'll champion school choice and solutions to lowering the costs of health care. instead of arithmetic, our focus should be on what helps families thrive. we don't want to fix the debt because a balanced budget looks nice, we want to do it because it will help keep money in people's pockets and create more jobs for those who have lost hope. the report minces no words in telling us that we have to be more inclusive. i agree. and as president reagan said, our 80% friend is not our 20% enemy. we can be true to our principles without being disrespectful to those who don't agree with 100% of them. finding common ground with voters will be our top priority. so, first, we're goi

government at home and abroad. >> rand paul wants to accomplish the departments of education and congress and epa. >> small detail. >> and the federal reserve and abolish the income tax. the second amendment which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic se
a sweep stakes model. smit: a big part is education; right? education of using the card in an appropriate fashion. why is that also a key -- a key promise of what you are doing? >> well, we're at an innovation conference, so many innovations and payments in the marketplace. what's challenging is getting consumers to understand the features and benefits getting them to adopt them. that's what pay perks is here for, educate consumers about what products and features are available for them and get them to use them in ways that benefit, again, the valuechain. shibani: dozens of companies here, but few run by a female. talk to me about being a woman in this environment, in this lean in time that cheryl sandberg talked about, and, you know, just overall what your views are. >> it's not something i think about a lot. with sherylout now, it is interesting to think about. i think that there's no difference between male and female ceos, and i think it's nice to get attention from a female ceo, but i would rather be recognized as a ceo. shibani: it was on this day in business back in 1894 that the v
. >> solman: a blogger for the chronicle of higher education, potter has argued that older scholars are clogging the pipeline for the younger ones. the number of ph.d's now far outstrips the number of tenured job openings. >> there's a lot of rage out there about being trained for jobs that you can never have. is it worth keeping younger people out, not giving them the chance to have full-time work, to develop themselves, so that older people can hang on to keep everything we love? >> solman: and these days, even younger people aren't always spring chickens. it's been seven years since 38- year-old joe fruscione earned his ph.d in english from george washington university. he has yet to land a full-time job. >> the market for ph.d's in humanities is almost super- saturated. there have been some positions where i've had to compete with hundreds of applicants who all on paper have roughly the same education and skill sets. >> so fruscione works three part-time gigs. one is running a moby dick discussion group at a washington, d.c. bookstore. >> when you hear moby dick, you think... >>
stance this is an important educational event. the decision maybe made. it's out of our hands now. we have to move forward. >> bill: all right. so your your educational sex week stuff about how to protect yourself, about responsibility. about, maybe, what the right and wrong of it is, as far as we're americans and this is how we should treat each other, i think that's fine. but, the how-two stuff. i think i would have charged admission for that a couple of bucks and not had any private money going to that. any public money going to that. just do that privately on the side. so, if people want to see that kind of stuff, they pay for it. would that have been unreasonable? >> yes. that would have been unreasonable. i disagree because we submitted a survey that many over 500 of our students filled out. and we provided programming based on their survey. and we're providing student fees. >> >> bill: you are telling me that the taxpayers of american should be beholden to college kids to pay for what they want. if that were the case, at marist college, the tax
to educate the public, celebrity have free speech too, that is what this boils down to. there is a line 2 between lobbyg and free speech. >> why are they e. exempt. what making them different, they hole up signs that say governor cuomo don't franc new york, they are trying to influence legislation. neil: how would that be different if some of you, and your hea lawyer colleagues wento protesting the same thing, you are not registered, you are speaking on behalf of fellow lawyers. >> neil, i think if we were to get together as a group and raise and spend more than 5,000-dolls, to stop fracking or whatever it may be, we would need to register as lobbyists. neil: groups can spend that aim and more going to washington, d.c. every year for annual right to life march, they would be considered lobbyist. >> this particular group is getting moneying it to particularly influence len legislation, and governor cuomo. under new york statute, because they do that, they meet requirement. neil: i understand, you focus on new york to that point they would be considered lobbyists. >> to that point everyone
and women who served the best health care, the best educational opportunities, and the best job available. they deserve nothing less. it is my hope that this reckless and shortsighted decision will mark a turning point in american history and that that we will never again wage an unnecessary war. we must use all the tools of america's power in resolving disputes, including diplomacy. we must have sufficient congressional debate. we only debated this go to war resolution probably a couple hours. we need more debate and oversight before ever putting another u.s. soldier in harm's way. finally, mr. speaker, just like in iraq, there is no military solution in afghanistan. we need to bring the war in afghanistan to an accelerated end and to bring our troops home now. dr. martin luther king jr. in expressing his sentiment during a different war said, the bombs in vietnam exploded home. they destroy the hopes and possibilities of a decent america. let us put this decade of perpetual warfare behind us, invest in our veterans, our children, and get about the business of nation building here at hom
of growth. what i say certain things shouldn't be done in washington. department of education i'd send it back to the states. that's what reagan said, what the republican party said. i'm one of the few who would dismantle some of the big bad things in washington and just say, that should remain with the states and the people. that's the only way you'll ever shrink the size of government, eliminating some departments. >> sean: i agree with that, i think that the states would do a better job. they would be serving the needs of the people in their community which makes a lot of sense. i was really in agreement with you over you tried to get your fellow senators and i was disappointed in some republican senators, to defund or at least put on hold the money that we're giving to the 9/11 truther and the guy, the former terrorist that refers to the israelis as descendents of apes and pigs, mohammed morsi. why are we giving this it guy f-16's, tanks, 1.5 billion dollars a year? >> it's beyond me and you know, we've closed down white house tours, but president obama somehow found 250 million ex
in pakistan and got attention as she pushed for education rights for girls. she has a reason to celebrate in her new home. >> paula faris behind the wheel, learning firsthand about driving distracted when her kids are demanding her attention from the back seat. the safety lessons she learned that could happy any parent. >>> first the historic visit by president obama to israel. the first time mr. obama visited the jewish state in his presidency. he will be greeted in tel aviv by top israeli leaders and then whisked to high-level meetings. >> the trip is expected to be rich in symbolism, and a speech by the president to israeli people to pledge friendship and security. >> with the mideast in turmoil and because of so much uncertainty in the region the trip is a high profile one. >> alex marquardt is in jerusalem. where the president meets with prime minister netanyahu today. alex, good morning, the trip we hear so much about symbolism is that code for not a lot of substance. break it down for us. >> reporter: good morning, yeah, i think you are absolutely right. the trip
. so now we have two women on the board. you have to educate women that they shouldn't accept something that doesn't make sense but it is, as a ceo, male or female, you're responsible for doing the right thing and if you're public for your shareholders, which is women represent 55% of the workforce now. so it's crazy not to pay them the same. >> is this going to make an impact, this book? >> i think it has. look at john chambers at cisco putting out a memo to his company saying they haven't done enough. not just on the pay gap but the percentage of women that are at management level. i think it's already made a huge impact. >> let's turn to this tax issue. we have seen amazon deal with it on a state by state basis. the stock hasn't really reflected the sort of lingering concern over state sales tax spp this a game changer for the industry or not? >> well, i think -- i think what's happened is this was supposed to be a few years and it's now been about 20. so i think it was good at the beginning but it's been unfair to other retailers, which is why should -- if either everybody collects
the fact that the democratic budget invests in people and when you invest in people an jobs and education -- ms. slaughter: i yield the gentlelady an additional minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady is recognized. ms. jackson lee: when off preschool program, when you have programs that transition women out of their homes after raising children into jobs, when off program that allows young people with a college degree to get a job, when you have programs that invest in infrastructure and build highways and bridges that america is begging for, like we built the hoover dam, then our grandchildren and children will receive an america that we invested in, they'll receive a fwift and they'll be able to work with their hands and their minds and they will have the ability to pay down any debt, they'll close any deficit, and they'll be grateful to do it because america will be the greatest nation that it condition. don't constantly pound us with our grandchildren and our children. right now, today, america can afford to pay for what we are doing in the van hollen democratic budget becaus
. we as a society have an obligation to do more to educate our young people about rape. they need to know it is a horrible crime of violence. it simply is not okay. >> and then there's the social media aspect of it all. prosecutors admitted that without those texts and those awful cell phone pictures they really didn't have much of a case. judge hatchet presided over one of the juvenile court systems in the country in atlanta before becoming a television judge and kathryn redmond is founder of the national coalition against violent athletes. judge hatchet, i thought of you immediately when i heard these verdicts and when i saw those kids and when i heard the reaction from the victim's mom and i wondered because this was so powerful and there was so much coverage on tv and social media, will this be the wake-up call that's needed for young people, many of whom you've seen come through your courtroom? >> absolutely. i presided over far too many cases like this. as i said last week, this really needs to be a teachable moment. i say that not just as a judge but as a parent that we nee
trying to save you the money. my job is not just to entertain you but to educate you so call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. too positive? too negative? or maybe positive with a skeptical bent. each day i try to gauge whether i am too optimistic or pessimistic when all i really want to be is an informed skeptic. especially on volatile days like today where the average is see saw, down, close be up four points. s&p slipping 2.4%. this morning on "squawk on the street," we had kind of a philosophical discussion about what's the right tone to offer you, the viewer. brian sullivan discussed the possibility of being too negative, and if you're too negative during the last european bank crisis, you left a huge amount of moolah on the table, enough to have true seller's remorse about the decision. he pondered the notion you can't be so negative you think the world is about to come to an end. even though people who are that pessimistic sound smarter to many who watch. sound smarter. that's right. brian contended that the pessimists somehow come off as more informed and that the optimists are perceived
international. helping survivors of war and conflict. finance international providing financial education to children around the world. >> that's great. >> right out of the gates, we've got the nasdaq composite down by a little bit more than 1%. feeling the brunt of the losses early on in trading. >> isn't that funny? >> google was, frankly, was there a note last week that they didn't talk about, that google may have trouble making -- look, i'm just pointing out that there is an old -- new tech came under pressure last week at the same time that the western digitals and the sandesk. >> i can say something about google for a second? >> no. i'm sorry. 2 got zero play and nobody cared. i'm the only one that scared now it's ebay. >> and it came out with a big report that basically said in their testing, paid search which is 90% of google's revenue. >> yes. >> made no impact on click through rates or results. that basically free, just being out there with your meditags and everything else was just as good as paid search. it had all of these algorithms and i didn't understand half of it, but i
, education, labor and pension programs and we found that there was $9 billion -- $9 billion -- of duplication. now, you can't get rid of all of that but you ought to be able to get rid of half of it. well, tom got so enthused by it that he went and took a look at the rest of government and he found $900 billion a year in duplication. now, how is that possible? well, my jurisdiction was rather limited. but what i have jurisdiction over is duplicated in almost every one of the -- financial literacy is one of those things that almost every department, agency, and program has something to do with financial literacy. based on our budget process, i'd say that's probably failing and maybe we ought to get rid of the whole duplication. but i'll also file an amendment that would provide for protecting and restoring moneys in dedicated funds like the trust funds so we don't steal money from other areas to make up for shortfalls. like the majority did with the abandoned mine land moneys for ten years that road to wyoming but instead were used to pay for a two-year highway bill. and finally, i'll file an
million worth of shares. some of the $1.9 billion from the education business. the shares are down 12% year-to-date. you can see up 3.5. we're watching smithfield foods. smithfield foods have hired goldman sachs in order to weigh some strategic options including breaking up the company. this is according to reuters. smithfield foods up on this news, up about 3% on the day. back to you. tracy: thanks, nicole. we'll see you at the top of the hour. ashley: march madness is in full swing and cbs and turner scooping up millions of eyeballs tuning into the turn any but now there is speculation that the final four coverage could move to cable as early as next year. dennis kneale covering this story and joins us now. dennis. >> hello, ashley. kind of a good news, bad news thing for cbs because they're raking in some really good ratings so far in the first week of march madness, the college basketball tournament. cb. is putting out a press release moments ago saying this is some of the highest ratings that the basketball product has brought in over 20 years. just one problem, variety, the trad

know, in france and in europe, the level of education for people is very high. so we have a very, very strong, you know, population to work. we have very strong infrastructure. so it's also a big place to invest. >> are you a supporter of holland and some of the things he's done? >> well, you know, they've done a few things. i would love to have more to be done, to be done because i think, again, france needs to be more attractive. >> are you rooming with -- >> i thought he was in russia now. >> even though he's an honorary citizen. >> we have a lot of business in europe, in russia, actually, and we are citizens of the world. >> that's a good answer. >> that's a good answer. >> very slippery. >> you spent a lot of time on diversity in women. >> yeah. >> and women in the workplace, given cheryl samberg's new book is a real issue. >> yeah. >> have you read the book? >> no, i've not read the book, but i've heard about the book, yep. >> the reason i ask -- >> what were you going to say? >> i have another question when you're done. >> the reason i was going to ask was whether you agree with
these were wonderful very educated professional people that just had a culture and ideology that we can't get. >> hal: ultimately -- that's -- the unfortunate part of holding on to an argumentative point of view beyond the solution itself. and that's why a lot of major, positive changes are generational. because bigotry is harder to pass on to your kid if they don't have a material reason for the bigotry. once the law is passed and there can be no -- they can no longer be slaves it's harder for his son to argue that point because he no longer has people forced to work below them. four or five generations down the line it gets harder and harder to beat that into your kid's head. and you are finding the youth of israel and the iranian youth -- look at who was running in the streets? they were wearing rocking republic jeans they were -- and the majority of that country because of the amount of warring that was going on are like barely 30 now at the oldest because of how many people were killed and the jasmine revolution as it's called the up rising in the middle east
